Remember the days when you'd dream of piercing your ears with a needle and apple à la Hallie and Annie in The Parent Trap? Learn the guitar to rock it out like Anna in Freaky Friday and bag a date with a Chad Michael Murray lookalike? Or memorise the dance routine to 'Jingle Bell Rock' like The Plastics in Mean Girls?

Well, despite a short break from Hollywood and recent suggestions she's in talks to star in a Life-Size sequel alongside Tyra Banks and has converted to Islam, actress Lindsay Lohan is now set to return to our screens as part of the cast of Sky1's new adult comedy, Sick Note.

Joining the likes of Harry Potter's Rupert Grint and Hot Fuzz's Nick Frost, the 30-year-old actress is reportedly joining the show for its second series, scheduled for release in the autumn of this year.

This morning, the American actress posted an image to Instagram of herself with her Sick Note co-stars and captioned the snap: 'Back on set of my new TV show #SickNote'

According to Deadline, the show follows Daniel Glass (Grint), who is a compulsive liar and stuck in a failing relationship and a dead-end job.

Glass then gets wrongly diagnosed with terminal illness by his incompetent doctor Ian Glennes (Frost), who then convinces Daniel to hide his misdiagnosis, sparking off an endless spiral of lies.

Lohan will take on the role Katerina West, the daughter of Daniel's boss, months after landing her own reality show called The Anti-Social Network which will see her hijack people's social media in the style of MTV's Punk'd.

We're glad to see Lindsay back doing what she does best.

Sick Note will premiere its first run in the autumn on Sky 1 and NOW TV.
